    Dress Pants for Casual Wear

    I need some help. I want to wear dress pants...these in particular..

    https://bonobos.com/products/linen-t...n%20yarn%20dye

    But I don't want to wear a standard dress shirt. I am not an office worker and have no need to conform to such a dress code. I am looking for some stylish ideas that Will NOT make me look like a lazy bum who couldn't be bothered to put on a dress shirt nor like someone who is clueless about clothing.

    On the other hand, if anyone thinks that breaking from the office worker standard is a really bad idea, i wouldn't mind hearing your opinion either.

    I was thinking a casual button down shirt, tucked or untucked. Maybe a light sweater or perhaps a polo. Bonobos also has their Unbutton Down line of dress casual shirts which seem to be right in line with what i am after.

    I appreciate all the help you can give me. I need it!

    I would go with a chambray, lighter denim or linen/cotton blend shirt. Darker blues look more casual and would provide a nice constast if you're thinking of going with that more sandy coloured trouser. Also consider pairing them with a nicer polo shirt.

      Those trousers are very neutral. You could wear them with many different shirts. However, true Oxford cloth might be a bit stiff. Also, as they have a texture, they might clash with a pique weave. I would go with a thinner fabric, either cotton or a cotton and linen blend. If a polo, I would go with a jersey knit over a pique.

        I'd suggest looking at some of the "Real People" posts at Put This On, as well as the blog in general. There is a lot of sophisticated and thoughtful, but not necessarily formal business dressing on the site.

            Thanks for the help. I missed those two sites completely somehow in my search. The Articles of Style post was right on point though the author talked about wearing trousers in place of jeans for the summer---my idea exactly--his examples were more winter wear. I could spend all day at Put This On as there are so many practical articles.
